North Bristol Running Group (NBRG) is once again offering its popular beginners’ course, starting on Friday of this week.

The course will run for eight weeks and support you to reach the goal of completing a 5km (3.1 mile) run or jog by the time you graduate at a local parkrun (even if you have never run before!).

The course will be held on Friday evenings at Bradley Stoke Community School (netball courts) from 6.30pm and the cost of the course is £10 in total. Over the eight weeks, NBRG’s run leaders and helpers will support you to gradually increase the distance that you run whilst following a structured training session which will include warm up, stretching, running, a short sprint and a warm down.

The first session will take place on Friday 13th October. Interested in joining? Please email Sheila, one of the run leaders, at for full details.

Sheila says:

“North Bristol Running Group is a local running group, based in Bradley Stoke. It is a friendly group of runners who support each other to train; it’s very informal and we welcome every type of runner to join our group.”

“We communicate our running activities via our Facebook page, so please take a look there.”
